how do you know you're not getting spark? did you pull each plug wire while turning the car over and see if it i was sparking? and how do you know that you're not getting fuel? what exactly did you change? something has to be different now

i pulled the plugs and checked if they were gettin spart but they were not
i loosend the nut on the end of the fuel rail and no fuel
i changed the main relay a while back, the one under the dash.
i did an obd0 to obd1 converson but did not hook up the vtec would that be a possibilty of it not starting?

and it sounds really weak when it turns over like the batttery is dieing but we were jumping it off another car i dont know if

Is your fuel pump priming when you turn the ignition on. Check that first. If your not getting spark it could be the coil in the dizzy. Alot of times if you check the plugs by grounding them out you can pop the coil pack. Should use a plug tester to be safe.

If the fuel pumps not priming then thats why no fuel. You may need to run a 12v switch source to the fuel pump to activate it. I have done this on a 99 civic with a d16z6 in it.

ok is that be cause of the diff ecu? and what about the tb do i have to get the tps switch from the z6 or is that fine? and how do you tell if the pack is bad?

Check all grounds. Especially the one that is normally on the thermostat housing. That's what it sounds like.

and when i switch the fuel pump just run a positive to the battery and a neg to a ground somewhere on the car?
